Dwayne Haskins “drank heavily” before he was bludgeoned to death on a South Florida freeway, a coroner’s report released Monday revealed.
The Miami Herald reports that two samples collected for a toxicology report showed blood alcohol levels of 0.20 and 0.24 for the 24-year-old NFL quarterback. The legal BAC limit for driving is 0.08.
A 911 report by Haskins’ wife, Kalabrya Haskins, on the morning of the quarterback’s death showed that he was walking on the freeway because he had run out of gas.
Dwayne Haskins died after being hit by a dump truck on April 9. He had reportedly attempted to wave cars off the shoulder before being hit.
The coroner’s report said that an unnamed “female companion” who was in Haskins’ car on the Broward County side of I-595 told police Haskins was looking for gas. According to the report, it’s unclear how she was related to Haskins.
A member of the Pittsburgh Steelers organization told police Haskins trained with teammates in South Florida and went to dinner with his cousin Joey after practice and later went to a club that “possibly” was in Miami.
According to the report, “They drank heavily and eventually got into a fight and broke up.”
Haskins also tested positive for ketamine and norketamine, which are drugs that could be used either recreationally or medicinally. Ketamine is an anesthetic; Norketamine is a metabolite of ketamine. There was no explanation as to why the drugs were in his system.
Haskins played at Ohio State and was drafted 15th overall by the Washington Commanders in the 2019 NFL Draft. He started in 13 games for the team over two seasons and joined the Steelers in a reserve role last year.
